Grateful for our Skype time. I felt I communicated the heart of the script, and more so, Daniel was attentive and receptive, so there was a flow space between us. Even if nothing comes of it, it was an empowering experience in its own right.

Dan is awesome. I like to go to Dan after I have made a few rewrites and get an honest opinion. I think Dan has really good insight into whether the story's world is as "big" as it should be, if the potential is there to make it bigger and honestly whether or not it is viable as entertainment. He asks great questions and points out areas that are not fulfilled in the story. Definite recommend from me.

Dan is so generous and overwhelmingly supportive, while still being very honest and constructive with his feedback. It's a rare combination. I highly recommend!
